I’m fired up, baby!
Even though I’d rather be playing in the NBA Finals, the rematch between the Spurs and the Heat has me excited for hoops. It should be a great series and it already has a great feel to it.
LeBron is the best player in the game, but I like San Antonio to win it in six or seven. Team over talent. Plus, the revenge factor will help the Spurs topple the champs.
I’ve always believed Tony Parker the motor for Pop’s offense, but I still think San Antonio has enough to win even if he’s not 100 percent healthy. Duncan and Ginobili know how to win, and San Antonio has a deeper bench than Miami.
The key to the series will be LeBron against Kawhi Leonard. James has to be special for the Heat to win, and I think Leonard will make him work for everything at the offensive end of the floor.
Fatigue shouldn’t be a factor. Both teams have had at least four days of rest. Besides, as you get deeper and deeper into the playoffs, the body finds the fuel necessary to get you through each game.
Enough talk. Time to decide a champ.
